We arrived at the weekend, no one there to book in with but a man on a boat moored in the marina gave us some info. We were surprised that the marina is in the middle of a very scruffy industrial estate, rubbish laying in the street. The marina is alongside a pub that was a bit noisey on Saturday night with a live band ( our sleep wasn't helped by the people who had been on the site who packed up at about 0500 and were shouting to each other as they packed up). The rest of the time the pub was busy (it was the beautiful few days in February) during the day but settled down at night. The pub serves some great beers, real cask ales, food wasn't up to much (finished at 1800). The pub is very dog friendly. The walks we took along the canal wasn't particularly beautiful with a cement works but really easy with our dogs and we could have walked miles. There are toilets there but it's a bit basic (but what do you expect from a CL). The manager was really casual, we went to find him on Monday morning to pay and check out, really friendly and relaxed. The location is really handy for visiting so many locations including Leeds. We found a great place to eat in the town (Dewsbury Delights) a fish and chip as well as curry shop, the largest Naans I've ever seen, tasty and good value. I'm not sure we would re visit the site but it's very useful and worth a look at for anyone.
